a lot of their members don't want the damage that this could do to the pentagon? >> well, and this is where the president is going to bring down the hammer the hardest and try the most. but, what is notable here, paul, even the republicans who have some qualms about how this is going to a hit defense. even they, the vast majority of them understand the necessities, strategic, policy-wise politically of allowing the sequester to go into effect and given that the law is kicking in on march 1st, there isn't any real legislative options that's open to, that republicans would go for that would change this. >> if republicans give in on a tax increase again, they are toast in 2014. when we come back, new york city saw murders plummet in 2012 to their lowest rate in 50 years, but the policy many say is responsible for that historic success is coming under attack. should stop and frisk be a thing of the past? . my bad. tell me you have good insurance. yup, i've got...

's following all these developments for us this morning from the pentagon. barbara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, soledad. all about spice and drones this morning, isn't it? well, this video has not yet been confirmed as the genuine article by the administration, the pentagon or the cia but it's getting a lot of attention. if you look at it, it's perhaps not so compelling itself, but there's plenty to try and figure out. let's get to that in a minute. but i want you first to listen to -- we translated some of the voice on the tape describing what you're looking at. have a listen. >> translator: this air craft has had many flights in countries around iran. in operations that have taken place in pakistan, this aircraft has provided guidance. >> reporter: so a claim there of u.s. spying on iran and that's really what this is all about. if this is the genuine article, the key question for u.s. intelligence agencies will be what technology now is actually in iranian hands, what do they know and what are they planning to do with it. >> all right, then let's talk about the drone program u
lawmakers the pentagon itself is partly to blame. jd gordon, former defense department spokesman for donald rumsfeld and robert gates. honor to have you on our program. >> honor to be here, bill. bill: what do you think about what he is making the point he is making? >> understand that he is frustrated but you know i think a lot of frustration should go back to the obama administration. it was the obama administration insist we have sequester if the debt super-committee failed to reach an agreement and they failed to reach an agreement. i remember very specifically at one of the presidential debates president obama told governor romney sequestration is not going to happen. two weeks away and looks like it will happen. it will be devastating for the military. we're talking about curtailed military operations around the globe. reduced funding for mint nance and training. 800,000 dod citizens are looking for furlough or forced time without pay. this will be devastating and we're just getting started with sequestration. bill: the last point you just made a lot of people haven't talked about. 80
military community where he plans to highlight painful cuts they say for the pentagon and the u.s. navy. but republican leaders calling on the president to quote, stop campaigning and help them solve the problem. but at the moment, there are no meetings planned between any of these sides, the house, the senate, the white house and they're taking friday off as of now. martha: all right. well the looming budget cuts were high on the agenda when the president sat down with the national governors association yesterday. arizona governor jan brewer went "on the record" with greta van susteren to get her impressions exactly what happened at that meeting. here's that. >> you know, he definitely says he wants to work together but obviously he doesn't want to compromise one little bit. bottom line he wants to raise taxes. and he doesn't want to cut. i think the american people believed, that the time now is to start cutting the budget. martha: so when it came to compromising governor brewer went on to say that the president said that the elections were basically behind him and that he was going t
doing this from tsa to the pentagon and you have the white house, i believe, egging them on. it's in the white house' interest to create the most lurid possible story about what the cuts would mean. they want to put them off or substitute tax increases for them. jon: we heard ray lahood talking about airport patrol towers that will be unmanned from midnight on. frankly there are a lot of airport control towers unmanned from midnight on and pilots land anyway. >> the way these things were designed, they were designed to be stupid and designed to make it painful for both sides. so they do something else to reduce the deficit instead, that is not going to happen. the sequester is going to happen march 1st and i think after that at some point hopefully both sides will sit down and figure out a more rational way to allocate these cuts. these cuts should happen. if we can't gut 3% of the budget over ten years we moisture as well declare national bankruptcy right now. jon: interesting that its discretionary funding, and programs that are getting cuts, no cuts from mandatory spending. >
, when it comes to cuts, maybe it's not as bad as the pentagon and others are warning. because he says republicans should argue that overall defense spending is still on the rise. now, cornyn admits that this is even a change for him. help said he would listen to leon panetta and others say these across the board spending cuts would be devastating. but he says he looked into it and he decided the best message for himself and other republicans, and of course this is the number two senate republican, is to say, you know what, maybe it's not going to be that bad. but as you well know, wolf, arguing that any cuts in military spending is an anthem ma to most republicans so i would imagine he's going to get some backlash on that messaging when he talks to republicans about it tomorrow. >> when it comes to gop legislation to prevent the negative impact from the sequester, what are you hearing, what's going on? >> reporter: what's going on right now is there is sort of the leading idea among senate republicans for a proposal that they will probably vote on this week. is to give the president f
in new york. the pentagon is broken. what do we know about al qaeda? did we know that members of this network, all this information we take for granted now? >> we did not know that much. we did not know who was responsible for 9/11. we had a few assets that provided us some peripheral information. we did not know very much. it took a long time for us to be in a position to really learn what was going on. in march of 2002, we captured al zabeta. we recognized that we had to do something different. contrary to what some people are saying, he initially provided a couple of pieces of information. then he shut down. we knew they were coming after us in the second wave of attacks. we knew that they had a nuclear program. they had a biological weapons program. we thought we needed to do something different. that is when the enhanced interrogation program came into existence. he went through the program, started in august of 2002 for 20 days or so. a few weeks later we captured a major player. he was a go-between. this was the key to all of that. we forget that it was not just osama b
